Currently AMC Removals are the only Scottish removal compoany to proudly achieve carbon neutral status.
Corporate Social responsibility.
AMC Removals participate voluntarily in the ‘Career Ready Programme’ from national charity Career Ready. This voluntary programme links High School students with working people and workplaces to develop the students understanding of careers and the right attitudes and professional skills needed to gain employment. This is a time intensive programme involving AMC Removals visiting the student in their school, organising visits to workplaces and supporting a paid internship with AMC Removals during the summer break. For each student, AMC Removals commit to a two year programme of support and help.
AMC Removals also visit local primary schools to give informative talks on a broad range of topics. This is always very much enjoyed by our staff and of course the primary school pupils.
